Setting the UNIX file permissions is not sufficient. There is a MySQL
privilege called File_priv that you must be granted by the MySQL administrator
before the server will read files for you on your behalf. This isn't a
privilege that is granted lightly (at least, it shouldn't be), so you may
well not have it.
On the other hand, if you're your own admin, turn on the File_priv privilege
for yourself in the mysql.user grant table.
